Install the license


A VE license entitles you to use the feature on all nodes in the cluster. You must install the license before you can encrypt data with NVE.

What you’ll need

You must be a cluster administrator to perform this task.

About this task

You should have received the VE license key from your sales representative.

  1. Install the VE license for a node:

    system license add -license-code license_key

    The following command installs the license with the key AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.

    cluster1::> system license add -license-code AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
  2. Verify that the license is installed by displaying all the licenses on the cluster:

    system license show

    For complete command syntax, see the man page for the command.

    The following command displays all the licenses on cluster1:

    cluster1::> system license show

    The VE license package name is “VE”.
